In a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference on January 31, 2002, National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice said: ” ‘We will pursue [al-Qaeda’s] members by every means at our disposal. We will disrupt its plans, destroy its bases, arrest its members, break up its cells and choke off its finances. And our enemy is not just al Qaeda, but every terrorist group of global reach. This is not just our struggle; it is the struggle of the civilized world… The United States draws no distinction between the terrorists and the regimes that feed, train, supply and harbor them. Simply put, harboring terrorists isn’t a very good business to be in right now.’ ”
